Dear Reader: Did you know that we never charge charities to be rated on our site? This allows us to maintain independence and conduct unbiased evaluations. If everyone reading this now donated $5, our website would be sustained for years to come. If Charity Navigator is useful to you, take a minute to keep it online and free for another year.
Charity Navigator is a nonprofit too. We rely on donations. If everyone reading this donated $5, we could keep it online for another year.

Established in 2010, The Animal Recovery Mission (ARM) is a vanguard not-for-profit organization, dedicated to eliminating extreme animal cruelty operations worldwide. Our mission is to be an uncompromising defending force for the welfare of animals,  in addition to putting an end to and preventing pain, suffering and torture inflicted as a result of inhumane practices.

ARM implements direct-action tactics to investigate, document and expose illegal activities of animal cruelty. The organization's main goals are to improve the quality of life for animals and educate the public. The end result will raise awareness of the unforeseen ethical, social and environmental implications of animal abuse and produce effective changes in the treatment of defenseless animals.
